    Hello everyone! Names Don and I'm in need of a cheap mode of transportation and stumbled upon this great spin! looks like a lot of fun. In this thread i will document my whole adventure of building my first motorized bike with pictures, statements, discussions, questions etc.

    The Bicycle and its story:
    Yesterday after finding this great idea on the web looking for a cheap car, i went on craigslist and looked for a beach cruiser as i love the look. I found plenty of them. Some way out of my price range when i stumbled upon a Huffy cruiser from 1999. frame in great shape new rims and tires just missing a crank and pedals for only $50 so i picked it up.

    I tore the whole bike down about an hour ago and have sprayed the body with a paint remover.
    The paint will scheme will be a flat green with flat black accents.

    The engine:
    SO far no engine has been ordered as I'm shopping around.

    Stay tuned for pictures and updates!

    edit: Engine ordered from zoom bicycles. 80cc (66cc) Black Kit. 124.99 shipped!


    sanded.... god that took quite a bit of time by hand lol
    no pics of bare frame. pic of primer:

    One of the things left to do is mount the rear sprocket true it up, mount the chain guards, run the chain, then the chain tension piece.
